‘Brazil’s Trump’ Supporters do a ‘January 6th’ Repeat

Bolsanaro apparently is trying to do what Trump was unable to do in the U.S.–overthrow the democratically elected government in Brazil. Probably will end the same way. The problem is the military in Brazil has a long history of not respecting election results.

The FBI is warning us:

FBI warning to lawmakers that QAnon conspiracy theorists may become more violent…

The FBI has warned lawmakers that online QAnon conspiracy theorists may carry out more acts of violence as they move from serving as “digital soldiers” to taking action in the real world following the January 6 US Capitol attack.

The shift is fueled by a belief among some of the conspiracy’s more militant followers that they “can no longer ‘trust the plan” set forth by its mysterious standard-bearer, known simply as “Q,” according an unclassified FBI threat assessment on QAnon sent to lawmakers last week, which was obtained by CNN.

The above is from 2021. Even under Trump the FBI was warning the public:

An FBI document, first reported by Yahoo News, identifies conspiracy theories as potential domestic terrorism threats, specifically identifying QAnon, a group that believes there is a “deep state” working against President Trump, in the memo.

The FBI specifically points to QAnon and Pizzagate, a conspiracy theory that claims Hillary Clinton and other top Democratic figures are running a child sex-trafficking ring beneath a pizza shop in Washington, D.C., as examples of groups whose messages could lead to “violent acts.”

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document, dated May 30, reads.

Texas Freeze Blackout Proves Fossil Fuels are Outdated

The Governor of Texas and the rightwing are doing damage control. Texas is the capitol of fossil fuels in America. But all that oil is not serving the people of Texas. So what do you if you can’t explain it away. You blame someone else. Blame it on the left and on the non-existing Green New Deal:

Proud Boys Leader Was ‘Prolific’ Informer for Law Enforcement

He’s a snitch. Might not go over well in prison–where he’s going:

Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys extremist group, has a past as an informer for federal and local law enforcement, repeatedly working undercover for investigators after he was arrested in 2012, according to a former prosecutor and a transcript of a 2014 federal court proceeding obtained by Reuters.

In the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

These insurrectionists are typical right-wing extremists. They hate cops. Which is ironic because MAGA types always praising law enforcement.

Members of Several Well-Known Hate Groups Identified at Capitol Riot

The worst of the worst were part of those groups who entered the Capitol building:

The precise composition of the mob that forced its way into the Capitol on Wednesday, disrupting sessions of both houses of Congress and leaving a police officer and four others dead, remains unknown. But a review by a ProPublica-FRONTLINE team that has been tracking far-right movements for the past three years shows that the crowd included members of the Proud Boys and other groups with violent ideologies. Videos reveal the presence of several noted hardcore nativists and white nationalists who participated in the 2017 white power rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that President Donald Trump infamously refused to condemn.
